GARNIER SKINACTIVE

Misschien heb je het dit weekend al op televisie of internet voorbij zien komen en zo niet dan weet je het nu, Garnier heeft er een nieuw product bij in de befaamde micellaire lijn, namelijk de micellaire reinigingsgel. Dit product combineert de micellaire reinigings kracht met een reinigingsgel in een handige pomp flacon. Ideaal voor onder de douche, aan de wastafel of in bad. Afgelopen week mocht ik als een van de eerste dit product uitproberen en omdat ik een gevoelige huid heb ben ik daar altijd voorzichtig mee. Maar omdat ik het micellaire reinigingswater al langer naar tevredenheid gebruik durfde ik de test wel aan. En gelukkig kan ik alleen maar positief zijn, mijn gevoelige huid reageert er tot nu toe goed op. Wanneer ik s’ avonds douche of in bad ga gebruik ik graag een reinigingsgel om meteen mijn make-up te verwijderen,  dan is een pomp flacon met een reinigingsgel het makkelijkste in gebruik. Voor het eerst heeft Garnier nu de micellaire technologie geïntegreerd in een reinigingsgel. Micellen zijn actief reinigende bestanddelen en afkomstig uit de farmaceutische wereld. Ze trekken make-up, vuil en onzuiverheden aan als een magneet waardoor deze makkelijk en snel verwijderd worden, zelfs zonder hard te wrijven. Dus als je […]

FASHION-VINTAGE

Me and some of my clothes we go a long way back, mainly because I’m so sentimental and recently also because I want to save some of my stuff for when Chloé gets older. But last december, as I took a good look at my overflowing closet I decided it was about time to let some of it go. So I teamed up with the girls from Fashion-Vintage and Designer-Vintage.com to sell some of my pre-loved stuff. So if your interested take a look at my boutique and buy, buy, buy. I will be adding some more pieces over the next couple of days so keep an eye on my social media of you want to be the first to know! xo Hanneke

A TRAVEL CLASSIC

One day in the past year I came to realize that I was in desperate need of a large travel bag. Always putting my handbags to the test when traveling. Imagine my Prada tote overflowing with stuff when I leave for any kind of destination, almost to point of total destruction. Well, a worn out Prada tote was never my style so after the last time I promised myself never to do this again and get my self a descent travel bag. So after some doing my research, which for me is about 50% of the total fun when buying a new investment, I came to the conclusion that all the real travel experts travel with a set of Louis Vuitton for decades now. Well a whole travel set of Louis Vuitton is definitely on my list, the list called Want!!! but definitely not going to happen any time soon!, but he you got to start somewhere. So I thought this Neverfull was going the be the perfect starting point and I can perfectly test it in about two weeks when I leave for a well deserved holiday to the Caribbean. So Neverfull, well, I don’t know if that true […]

FENDI VIDI VICI

Can you get a high from shopping?? I know I can, especially when I get my hands on something that was on my mind for a very long time. Finaly buying that bag that I saved up for,  finding the perfect dress for a special occasion or scoring that one perfect item at the end of the sales, I love it. So was the case with my latest conquest. I spotted them already at the beginning of the season but at an outrageaus price they were way, way, way out of my reach.  As I usually do in these kind of situations I kept my eyes on them all the way trough the season and trough the sales. Then finaly at the last round (hello 60% + another 20% of the saleprice) I gave myself the green light. And somehow buying such an exceptional piece for a price like this feels even more rewarding then buying it at it’s full price, like a race you have won.

PONYHAIR

I’m so happy it’s November, this means my birthday is coming up at the end of the month and that I can start planning my party and call on the search for the perfect partydress. For me the search and planning is have the joy so I always love the start as early as possible, it also keeps my mind buzzy and not think of the dreadful weather that’s making most people depressed these days. Although my first purchase of this month has nothing to do with al the above, I simply couldn’t resist them. To me they are the perfect combination of both elegant, sophisticated, wearable and cool. I really wanted a bootie that was both comfortable and dressed up, something I could wear as easily to work as when I go out. Well, If tried both now and can assure you they have passed the test with straight A’s.   |Ponyhair Booties ZARA | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |TUMBLR |

PARTYDRESSING

When it comes to party dressing or dressing for special occasions I love to shop at Karen Millen. This English glam brand always has it right when it comes to affordable but high quality pieces. From classic LBD’s to showstoppers, they have it all.  Like this dress that immediately caught my eye while browsing through the online boutique. It’s short but combined with the high neckline still demure. The carefully placed inserts gives it a very shaped and figure consistent fit. Teamed with a pair of over knees boots or with black tights and heels, you will not leave the party unseen.   | Dress Karen Millen | Boots ZARA | Clutch ZARA | Sunnies CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |TUMBLR |

BELLUCCI

Meet my latest shoe crush, the Dolce & Gabbana Bellucci slingbacks. The moment I first laid my eyes on them, online, I could immediately imagine myself wearing them with almost all my favorite summer clothes. I absolutely love every single aspect about them, the colors (blue is one of my favorites), the sripes (I love, love, love stripes, so classic and chic) the heel, the model. Anyway, you get the point, just everything about them.  These beauties scream Riviera chic and are the perfect addition to my summer wardrobe and indispensable for my upcoming holiday. These are my first pair of Dolce & Gabbana heels and also the first time I shopped at MatchesFashion.com. If you want to buy designerwear online I can highly reccommend this site.

THIS SUMMER FAVORITES

Each summer I have a couple of beauty and accessory favorites, some will only survive one summer and others come back each year. These are the ones that made the cut this year. My latest beauty crush, off course from Chanel, is Les Beiges. For that perfect summer glow and matte finish. And the best part is you can use it all year long. | Chanel Les Beiges N* 30 |   My favorite sandals from last year are still on top of my list this year. You probably already noticed that I usually prefer heels over flats but when I do wear flats they have to be stylish. These multi colored glitter sandals match almost any outfit and therefor are perfect for any summer day. | Glitter sandals (from last year)  Topshop |   The latest addition to my sunny collection. A must for any summer day. | Sunglasses Stella McCartney |   Just a recent discovery for me, this gift from my big sis.  I’m already hooked.

CALL OFF THE SEARCH

Like every fashionista (so it seemed) I was searching for the ultimate espadrille this summer, the Chanel version. But after a very disappointing search that led me across Paris, Antwerp and Amsterdam. Almost afraid of asking what I was searching for, all I got to hear was, SOLD OUT, you’re to late, everyone else was here before you, you’re never gonna find a pair anymore, come back in September and so on. So I gave up, bought myself a pair of two at H&M, but  you know, it just wasn’t the same. Now don’t get me wrong, I love my H&M espadrilles and I’m not such a label snob that only wants to wear designer but when I set my mind to something I just can’t seem to let it go so easily. So I kept my eyes open, searched all over the internet and then I found them (or, as I like to think, they found me, stupid I know), when you least expect it, BOOM, they landed at my doorstep. So call of the search!   | Espadrilles CHANEL | If you’re also looking for a pair, you can still find them on ebay. . | Follow me […]

NEW IN: DUNE

My latest addition to my shoe collection are these nude-black striped pointy heels from Dune. After spotting them in a magazine I started tracking them down all over the internet only to found them sold out everywhere. But as I’m not the one to give up easily I finally found a pair in my size on asos.com last week. So here they are, fitting perfectly and also a complement to my summer wardrobe.   | Heels Dune via ASOS.com | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

SPEECHLESS

Last week I received these beautiful Platinum and Rose gold bracelets from Speechless Bracelets and oh my have they been popular. Not only have I been wearing them ever since their arrival, they also caught everyones attention. Seems like every woman I bumt into want to have one (or two, or three) of her own. Personally I also want to collect them all, they inspire me and remind me of the important things in life, combining the beauty of a golden bangle with inspiring quotes. Want to win one of your own? Speechless Bracelets has some really cool Like-and-Wins on their Facebook page:   https://www.facebook.com/Speechlessbracelets?fref=ts | I’m wearing the “Never give up on things that make you smile” in Rose gold and the “Hold on to your dreams” in Platinum | Watch Michael Kors | www.speechlessjewelrywebshop.com . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

TASSELED

Ever since I bought these heels at Zara they have been amongst my summer favorites. But sometimes wearing an item so many times can get you bored. And so while I was browsing my English Vogue I saw an ad of Jimmy Choo with the most amazing tasseled heels ever. Somehow they reminded me of my Zara printed heels and make me realize I could easily get the same effect by adding some satin tassels. After browsing the internet I found these satin ones and voila, the result. The same shoe, a new way to wear them. | Heels ZARA | Satin Tassels | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

EASTERN LIGHT

As you may have noticed I’m totally into white nails lately. As a matter of fact I haven’t been this excited about any nail polish since Chanel introduced the Jade. For years white was a absolute no go and now it’s seems like every fashionista’s favorite. That’s exactly what can make me go crazy and yet makes me love fashion so much, never a dull moment. Anyway, the nailpolish hype is reborn. After Rouge Noir, Black Satin, Blue Satin and my all time favorite Coromandel (which all became sort of classics) now white is my favorite color. At least for this summer, after that I guess I will go back to my trused red.   | Nailpolish Chanel Eastern Light | Ring YSL | Cuffs H&M | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

ZIP IT

It’s official, I’m a repeat offender, I love to buy/wear skinny’s with a zipper at the hem. I think they are just a little bit more flattering than a normal skinny, a not so skinny skinny, that’s why I always wear the zips opened. I even caught myself checking every pant for a zipper hem the other day when I was shopping for a new black skinny. Once you go zipped you never go back.   | Skinny H&M | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

THE BOMBER

The bomber is the jacket du jour these days and after searching for the perfect one for many weeks I finally found mine in Paris. Off course (boring, predictable, I know )  I found it at Zara, but then again, I haven’t seen it in stores here and it’s not sold online also. So maybe you have to go to Paris to find the perfect jacket, even when you still buy it at Zara of all places.   | Jacket Zara | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

NEW IN: BLACK

Black shoes, one thing you can never have to many off in my opinion. They go with any outfit to almost any occasion. Except when you are spending some days in the France country side like I am now, there perfect. Off course I brought them with me to be actually worn but they just have to wait until we arrive in Paris. Can’t wait.   | Heels Zara | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

NUDE

I was searching for a pair of nude pump for a while before I found these at Topshop. Somehow the other ones I spotted were all a bit boring in my opinion. So when I found these my first reaction was; not so boring. To be honest, I was a little bit afraid the studs would be a bit to much but when I tried them on that feeling faded away immediately. And as a shoe lover I know one thing for sure; a good shoe always looks better when being worn.   | Heels Topshop | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

NEW IN: VINTAGE DIOR

Since watching Carrie Bradshaw rocking a little Dior saddle bag I was a fan, back then I did a few attempts to get one of my own but somehow I never ended up with one. So after some time this little one faded into the back of mind en I was totally focused on other gems that were more on top of my wishlist. And like with so many things in life, when you’re least expecting it, they happen. So when I bumped into this little saddle bag I new it was meant to be. It’s a vintage, designed by John Galliano, not available in store, small saddle bag. The color, the material and even the hardwear is all perfect and in perfect condition. This is vintage in it’s best form.   | Bag Christian Dior | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

CHECK LIST

So after I was so inspired by Dries van Noten SS 13 show I went shopping with a mission; checks. Off course I found them at my two favorite high-street stores H&M and Zara. After trying on different items I bought some pants and a shirt. Stay tuned if you wanna see how I  style them.   | Shirt H&M | Pants Zara | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

NEW IN: LACES

So in love with these new laced sandals I bought at Zara last week. They really reminded me of the Alaïa sandals that are on my ongoing wishlist but of course with a much better price tag.

H&M HOME

After refreshing my living room I really got the hang of it so now I’m also starting redecorating other rooms in the house. My second project was my bedroom, I didn’t want to change mutch because I like it clean and serene but by adding a new bed spread and a few cushions it almost feels like new.   | Bed spread H&M Home | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

SPRING

Besides fashion, interior is also one of my passions. As long as I get to style, move and do my thing I’m happy. Now, with spring in sight, I felt my living room was  (besides my closet) in desperate need of some spring colors. Out with the old and in with the new. With just a few minor adjustments I feel spring ready. Adding some fresh colored pillows, a light plaid and some flowers is all it takes to give the entire seating a whole new and fresh feeling.  | Pillows, Plaid, candles glasses and golden bowl all H&M HOME | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

LAST PURCHASE

My last purchase of January, this cool fake leather jacket form Zara I advised my sister to buy and later this week I also got for myself. A jacket like this one is just one of those versatile items that never can be missed in my wardrobe. I wear them all the time, in summer in winter, indoors, outdoors, with my favorite jeans or a party dress. Real or fake leather, I love it anyway.   | Jacket Zara | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

NEW IN: SPRING COLORS

Last Saturday, on a shopping spree with my sister, I scored some new stuff in fresh yellow and white combined with my favorite winter color black. Yellow, now amongst my favorite colors [I’ll tell you how it became my color later this week] is a big hit for spring so I think this will be my pop of color for the new season to come. It also combines perfectly with black and white, another big hit this spring/summer. And to top it all off, it all fits perfectly with the beaded heels I bought online at Zara. I already can imagine all the combination I can make with these items, now all I have to is wait for the weather to warm up.   | Black and white sweater H&M | Yellow angora sweater H&M | White trouser Zara | Heels Zara | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

THE CATCH

You would almost forget it but besides the unforgettable experience we had Friday I also finally got the Chanel bag I promised myself for my 30th birthday. It was not easy deciding what to choose in a store full of eyecandy but whit help from my sister I managed to stay cool and pick the perfect bag for me. Up front I didn’t had an clear picture in my mind of what I wanted to have, the only criteria that was on my list; gold hardware, suited for evening and a crossbody chain. So when I spotted this baby in the showcase in the middle of the store I knew this could be the one, and after I tried it on I was sure. This would be the perfect little sister for my large 2.55 and the perfect addition to my designerbag collection. To finish the look I also got the matching sunglasses that were on top of my list for a long time. I left the store as a very happy girl, I got all that I wanted, and now it’s time to enjoy it. . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

NEW IN: ALEXANDER WANG

It must have been in the air but just before the news landed that Alexander Wang is the new head designer at Balenciaga I scored these Fabiana’s at TheOutnet.com.  My first piece of Wangs, and probably not the last. Hope he is also the next to design a collection for H&M, now that would be the perfect combination. To bad the weather is not exactly cooperative these days but I’ll be wearing these babies soon, I just know it, must be in the air.   | Shoes Fabiana Alexander Wang  | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

NEW IN: ZARA BASICS

Scored not one but 2 new pair of shoes last week at Zara. As you can see I’m feeling a bit classical and basic lately, maybe that has something to do with my upcoming 30th birthday. I’m getting really old (I’m exaggerating, I know) , hopefully the wise part will also follow soon haha.   | Zara Heels | Zara Flats | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

NEW IN: AdR AT H&M

When you follow me on Instagram (@hannekeverstegn) you can see that last Friday I received my Anna Dello Russo at H&M delivery. Because I wasn’t able to drop by a H&M store I tried my luck online and for the first time I managed to get some of the pieces that I wanted. Love, love, love the packing, makes it all so much more special don’t you think? This zebra bracelet is probably my favorite piece from the collection. Ok, it’s an outrageous collection but it’s also lots of fun, exactly what I need this time of year.
